HAKAFA means "encirclement."
We are a congregation of people
who choose to have no building,
no board of directors,
and no fund-raising.
Our CIRCLE has been growing
for over 30 years.
But as we grow, our intimate,
caring, and welcoming
atmosphere remains.

CELEBRATE SHAVUOT
WITH HAKAFA!

Shavuot begins at sundown on Thursday, May 28 this year. Please help us celebrate Shavuot at one or both of these observances:

Tikkun Leil Shavuot 
Thursday, May 28, 9:30 PM - via Zoom

Yizkor Service
Friday, May 29, 10:00 AM - via Zoom

Shavuot commemorates the day God gave Moses the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai. It also has an agricultural reference, marking a stage in the harvest. One of the customs of Shavuot is to hold a tikkun, or Torah-based learning session, mostly late into the night. It is also a day on which yizkor is observed.
